Sow True Seed has once again signed on to sponsor the Blind Pig and The Acorn garden as well as the Blind Pig & The Acorn Reporters @ Large planting project.
When I first heard about the company, I was intrigued by their selection of heirloom seeds and once I realized they strive to find varieties that do well in the Southern Appalachian Mountains I was sold.
With an eye on the future, Sow True Seed has taken a stand to help ensure the purity of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds-so future generations can continue to grow their favorite veggies, save their seed from year to year, and continue the circle of growing that our ancestors handed down to us.
You can read more about their endeavor and sign a petition to “establish agriculture zones that are free from genetically modified (GM) crops and by asking for regulations to establish food labeling for ingredients containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)” by going here.
Sow True Seed has an impressive selection of vegetable, flower, herb, and cover crop seeds.
- They offer open-pollinated, non hybrid, and untreated seed-meaning you can save your seed from year to year with each new plant’s yield staying true to the original yield.
- Much of their seed production is USDA Certified Organic-and they’re striving to increase their organic varieties each year.
- Heirloom seeds-which are always open pollinated-make up most of Sow True Seed’s inventory.
Sow True Seed also offers programs such as:
- Customized Seed Packets – think weddings, birthdays, anniversaries
- A Donation Program – Sow True Seed donates un-used seed to qualifying organizations and groups
- A Wholesale Rack Program for retail stores
- A Fund Raising Program for schools and other organizations
- Garlic Fest – where you can learn all you need to know about planting, caring, harvesting, and storing your garlic
In addition you can get seed garlic, sweet potato slips, seed potatoes, garden collections, hand tools, tee shirts, gift certificates, and a variety of how to/gardening books from Sow True Seed.
